Since the phrase Shithole countries was offensive,

I dunno. I refer to the US as a shithole country all the time. Honestly, I don't know why all these fucking immigrants wanna come here. It kinda sucks. Generally speaking, the statistical average experience of the regular middle class nobody will be one of a slow, steady, methodical decline where quality of life and achievement of "the American dream" is concerned. Maybe it ain't PC to say that illegal immigrants are fucking stupid, but... if they actually were smart, the US would only be a temporary stop on their way to Canada or somewhere better. I still live here just outta habit, really. All my shits here and moving is such a pain in the ass.

"If you don't like it here, you should get the fuck out, Rosie O'Dumbass!"

...is commentary that kinda misses the point I just made. Truthfully... look our fucking murder rates all over the country. And look at the murder rates in these "non-shithole" places that YOU KNOW WHO was referring to. Numbers don't lie. Wouldn't it be nice NOT to get stabbed to death by an asshole who wants to steal your smartphone?

I'm still waiting for all of those people who said they would leave if Trump got elected to GTFO.

Well-crafted exposition on the state of free speech in the UK, after a Scottish youtuber is arrested and convicted in court for causing "gross offence", for posting a video in which a dog (above) reacts to phrases like "seig heil" and "gas the jews." (Note: In the original video, it's explicitly stated by the youtuber that he's seeking to annoy his girlfriend by turning her dog into "the least cute thing" he could think of, "a Nazi." The prosecution claimed context didn't matter. The judge agreed.)

Lol I've seen that one a few times now. But, but they're first amendment rights are being infringed!!  :lolsign:

I was astounded by their interview with Bill Maher. Holy mackerel. These kids are making it so easy for Fox news. A less organized movement with less leadership than occupy wallstreet. With less goals and more extreme ideologies. And the left media is supporting them  :mrdead:

Of course. Because if you don't support them and you don't speak out SAYING you support them, then the one and only alternative is that you support mass murder. Right? There is no moderate thinking man's stance on anything anymore, just emotionally-driven reactionary black or white polar extremism.

Saw some shit on the news tonight about how rapper Killer Mike issued a facebook apology for how the NRA used an interview they did with him on the same day as these high school gun protests.

What a fucking pussy!

First of all... anyone else find it humorous that someone nicknamed "KILLER Mike" is both supporting the NRA... as well as the teen anti-gun/anti-violence rallies? But what makes me call him a raging oozing flappy-lipped 70's bush with a jeri curl complete pussy is the fact that he obviously felt deep personal convictions for gun rights, thus agreeing to do the NRA interview... but he's such a wishy-washy pussy that he doesn't want to lose his precious popularity by being questioned as to whether or not he supports the flavor of the month cause.

And I know Killer Mike is a big name well known music celebrity. But it's probably a bad choice for an organization that supports LEGAL possession and usage of firearms to be associated with someone using "KILLER" as a fucking nickname. I think we're all aware where these kinds of people get their names from.

Shit like this is why I don't pay for an NRA membership anymore.

well, i worked at yankee stadium at the entrance gates, protecting the crowd patrons from knives, guns, and alcohol (the stadium gets more $$ if they buy it there). i don't think i was the best at what  idid, i had some training at the stadium but anyone could pick it up if they were observant enough. i used body language as cues though, drunk people always gave it away. i found many items but of course you had to let some shit slide as you would have to pat down their crotch to get to the shit. i inspected all bags and purses as well.

anyways, i think a similiar framework would be beneficial in todays, mass shooting phenomenon. you can see bulges for guns, nobody would be able to bring in an assault rifle. a handgun maybe. i spotted a guy with a gun and asked for his badge and all saw was a bulge in his shirt. mind you i checked hundreds if not thousands ppl A DAY, you couldn't take more than 10 seconds checking one person as it would hold up the nearly 50,000 patrons that wanted to go in. from a former security guards  POV, yes i do think clear bookbags are a good start.

In general they're  not wrong about bitching about the clear backpacks. I'm not wearing one so everyone can see my stuff. But they're minors and I'm 14-17 years older than them. My every day routine isn't walking into a public school. But yeah I think most have seen it at sporting events even if it isn't required. You can still plan ahead. My wife takes one when we go to a UNC game and fills it with toys and kids snacks, etc. You bypass security way faster.

well i left the stadium in 2013. they might have better security protocols now, however they would constantly change what people could bring in for security issues and (to make more money)  as for clothes checks, the less clothes the quicker it is. winter was the worst. ppl taking off their jackets, clear backpacks and purses would be a godsend. i'm sure the stadium is selling clear merchandise with the yankees logo already to make a fortune. however when i think back to how ppl hid shit in other objects, clear back packs will still have to be inspected, it will just decrease the amount of time it takes to get through large areas.

That was probably the worst thing from that bill maher episode(them claiming to be experts from suffering a tragedy).

It's about like saying that you automatically know more about extinguishing fires than firemen because you survived a structure fire. :|

Did you see how they claimed to be millennials in that same interview? I couldn't help but notice some irony. They claim that all the previous generations fucked everything up and know nothing about "democracy" so it's their job to "fix" it and they're confident in doing so. Yet they falsely identify with the generation above them. Maybe they're at least smart enough to know how stupid their generation is :lolsign:

Whenever there's a debate when the other side can claim their rights and liberties are being taken away that side rarely loses. America loves its guns. If you want to be a driving force for a change, ok, but considering the first two statements can you at least not go about it being little pricks? The majority of the country supports gun legislation. Some just get a little weary when you mention repealing/changing the 2nd amendment, and/or banning an entire brand. If you take an AR 15 and remove the pistol grip, minus scary black color, and add wood grain color you now have a ruger m4 mini. My dad has an m4 mini for shooting rats that eat up his lawn. What else will eventually be banned if the AR 15 is banned? All semi auto .22's? I'm not sure. I know the 15 is way more easily modified to make it more dangerous, but I could see the dominos falling.
